Lovely exhibition space in the centre of town set on two floors - one for art (which I focused on) and one for archaeology. It is free for EU citizens and a nominal 1.5 euro charge otherwise (I hope Brexiteers are happy!). No audio guide but a selection of the paintings had short descriptions in Spanish and English including how the pieces came to enter the collection and I found these interesting. The building is striking and there is a large accessible terrace with chairs to sit in the sun or shade.

This museum is free for EU residents or€1.50 for everyone else but it is excellent value. You could actually spend hours looking around if you really wanted to read all the information and study all the artefacts but we spent about 2.5 hours there and really enjoyed seeing the art on the 1st floor and then learning a lot about the history and archeology of Malaga on the 2nd floor.
The museum is housed in a very impressive building which is very spacious and has all the facilities that you might require, definitely recommended.

I thought this was a rather nice museum. It looks brand new inside and out. The layout is well done and the architecture is excellent. Many items on display focused primarily on the history of Malaga and the history of humans in the region from the last several thousands of years up until the present time. Lots of sculptures, paintings, archeological items, and a number of odd but interesting items.

Free for EU citizens, otherwise the fee for entry is very nominal. Plenty of bathrooms throughout the building.

Note there is very little English. English is on the large descriptive signs as you enter each new section of the museum, otherwise all the item/artifact description signs are only in Spanish.

I visited during COVID and had the entire place to myself, which made for a pleasant experience.

After being totally disappointed with Malaga’s Picasso Museum, we were surprised and thrilled with the Museo de Malaga. Not only were there no crowds like the Picasso but there were better Picassos and enough of them, if that’s what you’re looking for.
But if you are actually looking for a comprehensive exhibit of regional art, extremely well curated, set in a beautiful historic building, go here, especially if you only have time for one museum while In Malaga.

As the weather was a bit chilly we decided to pass some time in the central museum in Malaga. It is set in a beautiful building that has been totally refurbished. There is an art gallery on the first floor and archealogical relics on the second floor. All well laid out and labelled in Spanish and English which was really helpful. There are lockers for shopping /backpacks. You will need a €1 coin which you get back on colection of the items. Entry was free although the ladies on reception were far from welcoming and really need some customer care training. I dont expect people to speak English but a smile goes a long way.
There is a nice cafe on the ground floor and a restaurant on the 4th floor( didnt go up there)
Very interesting to see works of Spanish artists and the history (ancient) of the local area.

I really enjoyed exploring two floors of the Museo de Malaga, gaining a better understanding of the Malaga region (from an archaeological perspective) and also finding out about some painters that were previously unknown to me. The museum has a great collection of paintings - from classic to more modern painting. Allow 2 hours to view the exhibits at leisure.

If you’re into history or art or both, this is a great to visit. Great value - EU citizens enter for free and others pay €1.50. The ancient Roman area is very good as well as exhibits on ancient Malaga. The Spanish art through the ages is impressive including a few Picasso paintings. A great 1.5 hours were spent here!

The archeological section of the museum is superb. The building (the redesigned customs house) is elegant and spacious, the exhibits are magnificent and they are very well displayed.
The section devoted to art in Malaga, mainly in the 19th century, was not to our taste but a room of Picasso lithographs was a joy.

We found so many unexpected gems here! Both paintings and archeological artifacts. The exposition seems to be new as it is well structured and commented. Malaga has so many modern art places and if you traditional museum stuff, you will not be disappointed here.

I had not been aware of the degree of local cave art from pre-history but it was perfectly explained and illustrated. In fact, the development of society from pre-homo sapien through various ages and societies was outstandingly and grahically demonstrated. first Class! the second area of Andalusian art was also well curated, arranged and laid out.
